Kore was captured by Hades and carried off to the underworld to be his bride. Demeter, her mother despaired at her disappearance and searched throughout the world for her, accompanied by the goddess Hekate bearing torches. Demeter was furious to learn that Zeus had conspired in her daughter's abduction and refused to let the earth fruit until Kore was returned. Zeus consented, although as the goddess Kore had tasted the food of Hades, she was forced to forever spend a part of the year with her husband in the underworld. The flowering of the meadows and growth of the new grain marked her annual return to the earth in spring. When she returned to the underworld in winter, there was dying down of plants and the halting of growth. Condition: An excellent example with good detail and intact with some light earthy surface deposits.
